The appearance of the creature popularly known as Baby Yoda in The Mandalorian has raised a lot of questions, like what does the Empire want with him? Is he related to grown-up Yoda? And how soon can I own clothes with his face on them? Fans now have an answer to that last question. As Nerdist reports, Black Milk has launched a new collection of Mandalorian-inspired apparel you can buy, which includes Baby Yoda overalls.

Like the Child himself, these short overalls are adorable. They are decorated with cartoon versions of the tiny creature sitting in his floating pod and standing in his oversized robes. The best part of the garment is a secret for the wearer; pull down the front flap and reveal a large image of Baby Yoda (and his frog snack) printed on the inside.

Baby Yoda gear has been slowly trickling onto the internet since The Mandalorian premiered on Disney+ on November 12. The first official merchandise featuring the Child hit the online Disney store late last month, but some fans were underwhelmed by the generic depiction of the character. Black Milk, which has a large line of creative Star Wars swag, has finally delivered a Baby Yoda product that lives up to his online persona.

The Baby Yoda overalls are one of a handful of new Mandalorian items for sale through Black Milk. The same cartoon print is also available on a T-shirt. The third piece in the limited collection features Mando himself with Baby Yoda in his high-tech crib. Here are even more Star Wars items to add to your holiday gift list.

Be honest: You’ve watched a YouTube video or two in an attempt to learn how to play a song on the guitar. Whether it was through tabs or simply copying whatever you saw on the screen, the fun always ends when friends start throwing out requests for songs you have no idea how to play. So how about you actually learn how to play guitar for real this time?

It’s now possible to learn guitar from home with the Ultimate Beginner to Expert Guitar Lessons Bundle, which is currently on sale for $29. Grab that Gibson, Fender, or whatever you have handy, and learn to strum rhythms from scratch.

The strumming course will teach you how to count beats and rests to turn your hands and fingers into the perfect accompaniment for your own voice or other musicians. Then, you can take things a step further and learn advanced jamming and soloing to riff anytime, anywhere. This course will teach you to improvise across various chords and progressions so you can jump into any jam with something original. You’ll also have the chance to dive deep into the major guitar genres of bluegrass, blues, and jazz. Lessons in jam etiquette, genre history, and how to read music will separate you from a novice player.

This bundle also includes courses in ear training so you can properly identify any relative note, interval, or pitch. That way, you can play along with any song when it comes on, or even understand how to modify it into the key you’d prefer. And when the time comes to perform, be prepared with skilled hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, bends, trills, vibrato, and fret-tapping. Not only will you learn the basic foundations of guitar, you’ll ultimately be able to develop your own style with the help of these lessons.

The Ultimate Beginner to Expert Guitar Lessons Bundle is discounted for a limited time. Act on this $29 offer now to work on those fingertip calluses and play like a pro.

No matter when or where you grew up, back-to-school shopping typically revolved around two things: clothing and school supplies. And if you’re an adult of a certain age, you probably had a Trapper Keeper on that latter list of must-buy items.

Like the stickers, skins, and cases that adorn your smartphones and laptops today, Trapper Keepers were a way for kids to express their individual personalities. The three-ring binders dominated classrooms in the '80s and '90s, and featured a vast array of designs—from colorful Lisa Frank illustrations to photos of cool cars and popular celebrities—that allowed kids to customize their organizational tools. 

In this episode of "Throwback," we're ripping open the Velcro cover and digging into the history of the Trapper Keeper. You can watch the full episode below.
